Nadya Jiwa precipitates impressions as well as images that form in her work. Consuming information, human nature is presented in conjunction with a certain composition of reality through thin movements and strokes that may at once bederived from more cognitive considerations, while departing from the intuition. Symbolism is deftly interweaved in Jiwa’s paintings anddrawings in an attempt to distill a cacophony of interactions, information exchange, as well as development of her external world. It isas if she attempts to share a certain sensibility of personal knowledge and impression that approaches more spiritual considerations,impressions that are at once clear and yet uncanny, and of truths that seem devoid of meaning and yet linger.
